Recent Mount Si grad, and UNLV-bound, Trent Riley competed in the All-State Football Classic last night in Moses Lake. The game is the all-star game for high school football in Washington, and was being played in Moses Lake for the first time this year.

He played on the West team as a cornerback. We have no word on how things went, but we are checking to see if we can get some photos for you, and if we do, we’ll have them here. In the meantime, here’s more on the event from the Columbia Basin Herald.
